Ray i will send you some more of these photos.My 2 original albums have the meetings correctly dated.
I look forward to getting those, Ken...
But as far as all of these are concerned, I'm certain of the location being as I said, turning from Prinsep Street South into Rowley Street.
This is not a part of the circuit as mapped in Around The Houses. Well, Rowley Street is, but going the opposite direction. And Prinsep Street South had houses on every lot both sides of the street along that block, so it wasn't where the pits were located.
Further, judging by the (scant) evidence of the assembly of the crowd at the other end of the street, I'd say they have come into Prinsep Street South by turning left out of Kingsford Street.
This, therefore, is the 'unknown' circuit. But I'd imagine Jeff Dunkerton is still around and could probably outline where it went.
